David joined the Faculty of Music at Melbourne University in 1979 where he taught twentieth-century music composition techniques and orchestration as well as undertaking research in computer music. In 1981 he designed and taught the first first undergraduate course in computer music in Australia.

In 1986 he was appointed Director of the Electronic Music Studios at the Canberra School of Music. He established and became the Foundation Head of the Australian Centre for the Arts and Technology at the Australian National University in 1989, a position he held for over a decade. During that time ACAT offered the first Australian postgraduate degrees in Electronic Arts.

David has held artist-in-residence and visiting fellowship positions in universities in Australia, UK, France, Spain and the USA. He was a founding member of the Music Council of Australia (MCA) and the Electronic Music Foundation and has served on a number of organisational boards, including the Australia Council’s Music and Innovative Projects (later Mixed Media) Boards, the Australian Music Centre and as president of the Australasian Computer Music Association. In 2009, the MCA awarded him honorary life membership “in recognition of his exceptional contribution to its activities.”

Worrall’s PhD was concerned with the development of a software framework for the sonification of information in large or high-frequency multivariate datasets. His creative practice encompasses a number of endeavours: instrumental and electroacoustic composition, sound poetry, sound and multimedia/polymedia installations including the design and construction of portable event theatres (PETs) and the development of software for frameworks for music composition, text transformation and the sonification of multivariate datasets.
